Oscar Pistorius was "probably not wearing his prosthetic legs" when he fatally shot his girlfriend, a forensic analyst told his trial.
Reporters discuss their views on the evidence while trays of coffee are passed along. At times it feels more like a cinema than a courtroom.

The defence lawyer of Oscar Pistorius, Barry Roux, has spent the morning attempting to point out alleged missteps by police and questioned their treatment of vital evidence during their investigation into the killing of Reeva Steenkamp.
Mr Roux said fragments of the door through which Ms Steenkamp was shot have went missing, and he questioned the reliability of police studies of the door.
The double-amputee has been charged with premeditated murder for the killing of Ms Steenkamp, and three firearms charges. Pistorius has pleaded not guilty to all four charges.
The murder trial has been shown graphic images from the scene inside the toilet where Reeva Steenkamp was shot by Oscar Pistorius.

Apparent police incompetence appears to be becoming a theme of the defence case - police witness Johannes Vermeulen is being shredded on the stand.
Oscar Pistorius was "probably not wearing his prosthetic legs" when he fatally shot his girlfriend through a toilet door, a forensic analyst has told his murder trial.
The matter of whether Pistorius was on his stumps is critical to the case as it tests his assertions about exactly what happened on the night he killed Reeva Steenkamp in his bathroom on February 14, 2013.
The athlete has said he fearfully approached the bathroom on his stumps and shot Steenkamp by mistake, thinking she was an intruder.
According to his account, he then put on his prostheses and tried to kick down the locked toilet door, and battered it with a cricket bat to get to his girlfriend after realising what he had done.
JG Vermeulen, a forensic analyst, said he believed Pistorius was on his stumps when he fired through the toilet door, based on the angle of the bullet marks in the door, which was on display in the courtroom.
However, Mr Vermeulen said the bat was used to hit the door from a low position, and he knelt and swung Pistorius' cricket bat at the door to demonstrate his point.
